Texas Rush Success at ECNL National Play-offs

Print

The Texas Rush U15 ECNL Team have qualified for the North American League National Finals in Virginia next month after winning their 4 team play-off bracket in Colorado this weekend.  Rush got off to a great start winning their first game 1-0 against McLean Soccer Club (Virginia) on day 1 of the event with Allison Lawrence scoring the only goal of the game after flicking on a powerful header from Grace Piper into the net.  Monica Dallacasa made a crucial save at the far post to earn a shutout. 

Game 2 matched Rush up with VSI Flames (Florida) who also won their first game on day 1.  Allison Lawrence scored the first goal of the game with a cool finish from the top of the 18 yard box to give Rush a 1-0 lead at half-time.  VSI equalized early in the second half but the response from Rush was impressive and swift.  Grace Piper's shot from 30 yards flew past the VSI keeper into the top corner before Allison Lawrence scored her third goal in two games making it 3-1.  Katie Lawrence's trickery in the box late in the 2nd half won a penalty which was calmly slotted into the back of the net by Grace Piper.

Game 3 against Eagles Soccer Club (California) was delayed due to bad weather and eventually canceled because the play-off bracket had already been decided based on the first two rounds of play.  Texas Rush U15 ECNL qualified for the National Finals with a W2 – L0 – T0 record as bracket winners.

"Firstly, our thoughts are with Taylor Pritchard who sadly tore her ACL two days before departing for the play-offs.  We wish her the very best with her recovery. The character and attitude this team has shown in the weeks leading up to this event has been outstanding. They fully deserve their success and opportunity to compete at the ECNL National Finals.  Congratulations girls."  Andy Squire, Director of Coaching ECNL

The U16 and U17 ECNL teams also competed at the ECNL Play-offs with some very good individual and collective performances, but not enough positive results to progress to the next round.  See below for a full summery of results from the ECNL National Play-Offs:
